When we listen to stories from the Puranas (ancient legends of traditional lore), we know that there were asuras (demons). Those demons gave a lot of trouble to humans. They caused a lot of problems for rishis (sages engaged in deep spiritual practices). They gave trouble to the devas (celestial beings) so all of them prayed to the Divine Mother (Adi Paraasakthi also known as Narayani) to save them from all these troubles. Through the ages, the Divine Mother has incarnated on Earth – in different forms and known by Her many names– to destroy those demons.
